A rest day was a good choice!

A rest day for my mind, that is... I still did a lot of walking and small workout, but overall, I chilled out hard.

No packing, no traveling, no prepping, no lunchbox, nothing. I woke up when I naturally woke up (no alarm, whoa!!!) and got going when I felt like it. It was quiet and easy.

I took the dog for a walk, got my oil changed, did some banking, picking up my wedding veil, and walked down to Lark Street for Lark Fest where there is music, food, vendors and art. It was a gorgeous blue-sky day and I really enjoyed walking around downtown by myself. I even picked up a piece of art by a local artist!

Then I came home, leisurely did my laundry and put all the clothes away, cleaned a massive sink of dishes, tidied up and watched some TV.

I ate super well, today, too. A light egg breakfast, sausage and asparagus for lunch, and our homemade spring rolls (sauteed in a pan, not fried). Had some lovely organic chocolate as a snack, and I am quite satisfied!

Wow, did I ever need this day. So calming :)

Now, I am just waiting to hear from Chris... he left at 3 AM this morning to start his hike, which could take anywhere from 12-15 hours. I am hoping it doesn't take too, too long and that he isn't completely wiped out when he's done! That's the reason I didn't go: I was worried I would be a worthless dishrag of a human being if I did such a demanding hike, haha.

Okay, so back to chilling out (and occasionally trying on my wedding veil ;D).
